Shipping


Shipping paper is like shipping cannon balls. It is heavy relative to its mass. We package and ship with two things in mind: 1) packaging products so that they get to you without damage, and 2) using the most cost effective means of distribution. It's much more efficient to do it right the first time - and easier - than having to replace crushed packages.


Shipping Times

We normally ship on the same day an order is received if it is an "off the shelf" product, however, we are glad to assist you in any special handling requirements such as as Next Day Air or Saturday A.M. delivery.

Custom orders not requiring a die to be manufactured will usually be shipped within 3-5 business days.

UPS Ground Shipping - our default - takes anywhere from one to six days to ship within the US. Following schematic shows what you can expect in number of days it will take for your order to reach you when shipped via UPS Ground.

Packaging

All paper shipped by PerforatedPaperOnline - whether it's comprised of 50 sheets or 50,000 sheets - is carefully shrink wrapped in package quantities of 500 sheets or less. All cardboard shipping boxes meet or exceed weight capacity levels and - except for small package sizes and special requests - are shipped via UPS Ground. Shipments to certain areas such as Hawaii, Alaska and extreme rural areas are often shipped using USPS Priority Mail. When in doubt, call.


Shipping Rates

Shipping rates are automatically determined by UPS and USPS and include such factors as weight, as well as whether it is being shipped to a residence or a business address (business addresses are slightly less expensive). All shipping departs from Bethlehem, PA, 18018. Approximate shipping costs can be obtained from www.ups.com and www.usps.com.


Shipping Exceptions

There are always exceptions and shipping is one of them. See our comments regarding missing and lost shipments on our Policies page.
